Samwise Gamgee, Lando Calrissian, and Dwight Schrute walk into a convention center… and proceed to squabble over who was the best sidekick.

That’s the kind of quirky character interaction we’re hoping for at Rose City Comic ConPortland’s premier pop culture event — which returns to the Oregon Convention Center from Friday, Sept. 22, to Sunday, Sept. 24. The family-friendly celebration has something for everyone, whatever fandom you fancy.
